Nationally, the American Red Cross recognizes that across the county the segment of the population between 24-34 is an underrepresented segment with in our volunteer base. To build awareness for the Red Cross among young, civic-minded philanthropists, who want to make a difference the Red Cross has developed a tool kit for clubs across the country to develop Young Professional Groups.

Our mission is to Give. Guide. Provide. Whether planning social fundraising events or participating in community service projects (Give), you can support events that can help save lives. Club Red Members will also have mentoring opportunities with our youth volunteers (Guide) and leadership development through opportunities available within the group (Provide).

Co-chair member, Erin Thayse, explains what she hopes members will gain from being a part of Club Red, “I hope Club Red members feel they are part of a worthwhile group that understands how important it is to pay it forward. They might not need the services offered by the Red Cross today, but they or someone they know might in the future.”
